Good news for Charlotte Hyundai drivers from Matthew Hyundai dealer, Keffer Hyundai. AAA recently named the Hyundai Santa Fe as a top vehicle for active families with dogs.
With more than 80 percent of dog owners taking their dogs along in their vehicles on errands, leisure rides and day trips, many drivers are taking the safety of their pets into consideration when shopping for a car.
“More than 45 million households in the U.S. Have a dog, and many are taking Fido along for the ride on a regular basis,” said John Nielsen, AAA National Director of Auto Repair and Buying Services. “There are several vehicles with features that can help keep pets safe, comfortable and easy to clean-up after while also addressing other driver desires such as sportiness, adventure or luxury.”
AAA Auto Buying’s team of experts test drove and reviewed hundreds of vehicles to narrow down their top vehicle picks for dog owners. The Hyundai Santa Fe was chosen as a top SUV for active families.
The Hyundai Santa Fe, for sale at the leading Charlotte Hyundai dealership, features a nicely finished interior, a choice of new engines for 2010 and competence both on and off road. The Santa Fe’s cargo space is good for larger breed dogs and Fresno Hyundai shoppers will find that the Hyundai accessories available make the ride easier for both pets and kids. AAA praised the Santa Fe for its ride and handling which is great for both people and pets.
The Hyundai Santa Fe was chosen based on its crash test ratings, safety features, fuel economy, ease of animal ingress and egress, cargo area size, availability of tie-down hooks and easy-to-clean interiors.
